Reservoir compartmentalization and flow connectivity affects the volume of produceable hydrocarbons that are connected to a well in a field. Hence, this determines the volume of reserves that can be booked for that field as well as their valuation. Unexpected compartmentalization can seriously affect the profitability of a project, if more wells and more time are needed to extract the in-place reserves.
Therefore, reservoir compartmentalization is a major uncertainty that should be accurately assessed, in order to avoid unpleasant surprises during production, as well as identify any bypassed hydrocarbons.
Sofoil provides a set of integrated workflows that can be used to analyze long and short-term pressure and production data, to accurately identify connectivity and compartmentalization in an oilfield reservoir. They include techniques such as multi-well deconvolution, pressure pulse code testing and 2-D numerical pressure simulation. Including field static models along with these techniques leads to multi-scenario development planning on a complete digital twin of an existing oilfield.
